Support UAlbany Students - Sponsorship Opportunities

UAlbany's Student Emergency Fund
UAlbany is one of seven SUNY campuses included in a student pilot program for those experiencing an unforeseen financial hardship or emergency, with the goal of keeping more students on track towards graduation.  

UAlbany's Purple Pantry  
The pantry is stocked with a variety of non-perishable foods, fresh produce and toiletries. Individuals are able to access the pantry once per month (or as needed) and will be provided up to four day's worth of food for themselved and immediate member of their household (children/spouse/dependents). Financial donations are most beneficial to the pantry due to the fact that the pantry can purhcase food at a significantly discounted rate. Financial donations can be made via credit card. 

UAlbany's Educational Opportunities Program
To assist in making the EOP program a continued success consider making a donation to support EOP's various programming (e.g., trips and workshops), provisions (e.g., book stipend and emergency needs), and equipment deficiencies (e.g., technology). EOP programs are largely supported via NYS and federal appropriations which during times of financial distress can be more vulnerable to cutbacks.
